State v. Marana Health Center, Inc. (sex)

May, 2007

This is an action brought under the Arizona Civil Rights Act to correct an unlawful employment practice, to provide appropriate relief to an aggrieved person, and to vindicate the public interest. Specifically, the State brings this matter to redress the injury sustained because Defendant Marana Health Center, Inc., failed to hire Charging Party Joy R. Mockbee, M.D., to be its Medical Director, a position for which she applied and was qualified, and instead hired a less-qualified male applicant. Defendant thus discriminated against Dr. Mockbee on the basis of her sex in violation of the Arizona Civil Rights Act, A.R.S. § 41-1463(B).
